It looks more like a combo of retained scutes and a fungal infection. Plenty of RES have it, though I don't think I've seen it on DBT before.

So is it worth the $300 they are asking for Steve? Cuz I'm trying to estimate out the cost of trying to treat it out you know? :(

Treatment doesn't always work, so I'm hesitant. Also consider that the owner is either lying or doesn't know what they are talking about. So her history and health are questionable at this point.

Fungus itself is not dangerous, but the secondary infections are. Is $300 a normal price?

I would pass ,price isn't worth it unless it was a better looking terrapin or atleast a rarer subspecies.

It's a better price that I've seen for the and the ppl that are selling her own a pet store smh it's just all around bad. Your right Jonathan I'm gonna have to pass on this one, how do ppl manage to sell a turtle or any animal and want a full price on something that obviously has possible irreversible health effects? Makes me pretty sad actually :(

Yea that $300 is no where near worth it. Even if it was perfect the turtle might sit. $300 is a high price to pay. As for retained scutes its a maybe. That shell will take very very a long time to cure. Compared to other turtles that shed multiple times a year and problem could look better in a year, a dbt has no chance. DBTs actually dont shed for years at a time. So far my dbts seem to average around 3-4years to shed once.

This one is going for $150 right now faunaclassifieds. No shipping though. i actually could get her if i wanted. I know the person selling her and can meet him very easy but im done buying dbts. Just have to be patient and check kingsnake everyday.

That turtle is absolutely STUNNING!!! I'm amazed! Yeah the pic of the turtle I posted was a Carolina DBT I just feel really bad for the turtle and shame on the owners, I had no idea it takes DBts so long to shed.

Funny thing to him that turtle is not stunning enough and not good enough for his breeding group. His dbts that he has for breeding are really white.
